does "use_tls" mean StartTLS?
« on: February 23, 2020, 08:12:50 PM »
I'm trying to figure out how to use a secure connection from RC to my LDAP server. (I control both ends.) I haven't succeeded with secure connections, though non-secure connections works. If I set "use_tls" to true, is the connection attempt made using LDAPS or with LDAP and then STARTTLS? The LDAP server I am using does not support STARTTLS. For attempts at secure connections, the LDAP server reports the TLS handshake fails, and it wonders if there is a plaintext connection attempt.
